Introducing the first ever I Spanish Soccer Players Cup, where footballers will have the unique opportunity to showcase their skills, sportsmanship and professionalism in their beloved sport of golf. This exciting competition will take place from June 3rd to 5th at Golf Santander and will be played over two days, with a training day included.

The Royal Golf Federation of Madrid has shown their support by collaborating with the event and Banco Santander sponsoring it. This will allow players to participate in five official categories, ranging from absolute to 5th category.

Every footballer who treasures golf as their passion can now take part in the competition and show off their skills in strokeplay. Football players, both active and retired, have welcomed the values of golf with excitement due to it being a healthy sport.

And now, they have the chance to prove it. Notably, first division players, who have won prominent international competitions, will participate in the Spanish Golf Cup to prove they are the greatest footballers-golfers of all time.

Brand brings you more news where Mourinho states, "I'm not jealous, but Guardiola paid 80 million for Kalvin Phillips, and now he's leaving," and Sarri highlights how high the level of Spanish league matches are. Javier Gervás, the General Director of JGolf18 and the driving force behind the I Spanish Football Players Cup, has emphasized the importance of organizing a tournament that is both fiercely competitive and enjoyable for football players to play on a top-quality golf course such as Golf Santander.

In the months to come, JGolf18 will continue to work towards securing support for the event, with the aim of promoting golf not just as a fascinating sport, but also as a unique experience for soccer stars eager to show their skills and prove themselves as the best players in Spain across all categories, whether they're seasoned pros or enthusiastic beginners.

According to Asís de Bastida, Director of Golf Santander, both he and his team are thrilled to be involved in this exciting new project, adding that contrary to popular opinion, golf is a highly competitive sport that attracts athletes from all disciplines.

Fortunately, Golf Santander will be at its absolute best to accommodate this prestigious event, and both organizers and participants alike are expected to revel in the competition and passion that comes with playing golf.
